The Other Shoe

The Other Shoe – Jonathan Brentner - https://www.jonathanbrentner.com/https/jonathan-brentner-g8fgsquarespacecom/config/2021/10/21/prophetic-signs-versus-the-other-shoe
What comes to your mind when you hear the expression, “waiting for the other shoe to drop?” For many, it signifies the anticipation of an inevitable event, often with negative consequences.
According to Idioms Online, the phrase has been around for a long time:
“This expression probably has its origin in boarding or rooming houses of the early 1900s, where residents were crowded into multiple tiny rooms and the walls were thin, or from multi-floor apartment dwellings in cities like New York and Chicago, where one tenant’s bedroom was always directly underneath another.
“So, when someone came home and took off their shoes, it would be normal to hear a thud when one shoe dropped, and then a second thud when the other shoe dropped.”[i]
In many ways, this describes the times in which we live, does it not? Believers who are aware that we live in the last days recognize the many indicators of Jesus’ soon intervention in the world, which will begin with the Rapture followed soon by the Tribulation. For us, the “other shoe” will be joyful and wonderful, but for the world, not so much.
What are the prophetic signs that “the other shoe” is about to drop?
The second rider of the apocalypse signifies the occurrence of great wars after the church is safely in heaven with Jesus (Revelation 6:4). The world is progressing in this direction at an alarming rate.
During the past several weeks, we have heard repeated accounts of China flying dozens of military aircraft at Taiwan and of its army training for an amphibious landing. Many believe it’s just a matter of time before they invade the island nation as it has long been their goal to annex it.
Will the U.S. defend Taiwan and become involved in a war with China, one that could escalate into a horrific nuclear confrontation? Will China strike first at American interests to keep it from defending Taiwan?
It appears inevitable that China will attack Taiwan, but we do yet not know the answers to the above questions, when it will happen, or if they will actually invade the island nation.
Russia recently unveiled a missile, which can travel a many, many times the speed of sound and strike faraway targets in a matter of minutes. China also tested a similar weapon of mass destruction that can circle the earth several times before unexpectedly wiping out its target. Radar will not be able to see this missile until the last minutes or seconds before impact.
The words of 1 Thessalonians 5:3 come to mind in light of these technology advancements by Russia and China, “While people are saying, ‘There is peace and security,’ then sudden destruction will come upon them. . . .” Is this shoe ready to drop?
GOG AND MAGOG
Another potential flashpoint for war lies on the Israel-Syria border in the Golan Heights. For the past few years, the aligning of nations and the buildup of forces in Syria have closely matched the prophecies of the Gog-Magog war as described in Ezekiel 38-39. At times this war seems very close, but so far lacks the needed spark to elevate the tensions to the all out war described in these chapters.
A few weeks ago, Amir Tsarfati predicted that by the end of 2021, Iran would either have a nuclear weapon or that Israel would attack them. Either scenario could easily push the Middle East to the all-out war such as described by the prophet Ezekiel.
Scripture does not tell us the timing of this war in regard to the Rapture. I believe it will happen several months afterward, but it’s also possible it could happen very soon after Jesus takes us home or perhaps simultaneously.
The preparations for this war tell us that this shoe is already dangling in the air.
When Jesus opens the third seal, great economic turmoil results due to hyperinflation (Revelation 6:5-6). I believe that the U.S. has been on the edge of such a collapse for several years. The printing of money and enormous debt will someday destroy the economy here and cause great economic turmoil throughout the world.
Senator Rand Paul recently warned of future inflation that will be worse than anything we have ever seen in the U.S. We already see the signs of this and it’s about to get much, much worse.
This “shoe” should have dropped years ago, but I believe the Lord is sovereignly and supernaturally keeping it from hitting the floor until after the Rapture.
Many economic experts predict dire conditions this winter in America due to soaring energy costs and critical shortages of needed supplies. They believe that a financial crisis similar to 2008 lies in the very near future.[ii]
If anything seems like a harbinger of the coming seven-year Tribulation, it’s the culture of death that characterizes many governments in our world, especially the Biden administration, as I wrote about in a recent post (click here).
Although what I see already shocks me, I know conditions will get much, much worse during the coming Tribulation. The fourth rider of the apocalypse, “Death,” will make anything that has happened in the history of the world seem small by comparison, (see Revelation 6:7-8).
The planned COVID-19 outbreak, “vaccine” deaths, and deadly mandates are just the tip of the iceberg. Should it not alarm us that those who openly seek to depopulate the world have become the most outspoken proponents of the COVID mRNA injections?
The National Institute of Health (NIH) in America recently admitted that it funded “gain-of-function” research at the Wuhan lab in China. That’s nothing less than a euphemism for weaponizing the coronavirus to make it more transmittable and deadly.
The globalists planned the creation of this super virus, the timing of its release, and the vaccines, which do not stop the transmission of COVID-19 nor do they prevent people from dying as a result of succumbing to the virus. They only lessen the severity of the virus for a short time after the injection.
THE GREAT RESET (AKA “BUILD BACK BETTER)
For the people who live in Australia, this shoe seems to have already dropped. They already experience many of the draconian and tyrannical conditions that will characterize life on the earth during the Tribulation period.
In the U.S., a concerted effort is underway to destroy the fabric of our nation so that it yields to the desires of the World Economic Forum (WEF) to impose its economic Great Reset on us. This agenda is none other than the coming New World Order as described in the UN’s Agenda 2030.
Leo Hohmann, an investigative blogger and reporter, correctly describes the headway that President Biden is making in his effort to collapse America so that it will have no choice but to yield to the global powers that seek to form this new world order:
“Just like with his other policies, such as opening the borders to hundreds of thousands of unvetted military-age migrants and unleashing crushing inflationary pressures on the economy, Biden’s injection mandates were a calculated move to collapse America.
“The humiliating way in which the U.S. exited Afghanistan was also planned to maximize negative feelings among U.S. allies, while emboldening U.S. enemies abroad.
“The military, the healthcare system, law enforcement, the airlines, the rail lines, the supply chains, the electric grid — they are all going to fail within the next six to 12 months. None of this critical human infrastructure can survive losing 20 to 30 percent of its workforce. If they do survive in some hollowed-out form, they will increasingly only serve the needs of wealthy elites — not the general public.
“The United States of America will not exist as we know it one year from now when the 2022 midterm elections roll around, and the country will be even less recognizable by the time we arrive at 2024 and the next presidential election.”[iii]
A strong America would never succumb to the globalist’ designs of the WEF. Earlier this week, the U.S. President told the American people that his legislation, which he calls “The Build Back Better Act” (yes, this title comes directly from the WEF playbook), will cost U.S. taxpayers “zero dollars.” This is most certainly a lie; it will cost them everything in the end, including their freedom.
The objective of those who control Biden (the deep state) is to destroy America. The supply chain disruptions are intentional and will last until they have served the purposes of the globalists in contributing to the collapse of America. This shoe may hit the ground soon!
An essential component of the Great Reset is transhumanism, the combining of humans with machines or more with distant computing networks that will monitor their every move and control them.
Klaus Schwab, the founder and leader of the World Economic Forum, refers to transhumanism as the “Fourth Industrial Revolution,” which he regards as a key component of his “build back better” agenda. The two go hand in hand.
How will this “Fourth Industrial Revolution” both start and continue? I wrote four previous blog posts on this topic starting with, Transhumanism: The Plot to Control Your Life. In these articles, I demonstrate how the globalists plan to do this through vaccines that will, over time, inject mini processors into the human body that will monitor one’s every move and later control those infused in such a way.
Please know that the current COVID “vaccines” are NOT the mark of the beast that the antichrist will impose upon humanity during the Tribulation. However, why participate, or continue to do so, in something that has the intent of leading humanity to the place of slavery and inescapable perdition that the coming lawless one will impose on humanity?
If I correctly understand 1 Thessalonians 4:13-5:11, and I believe that I do, then those of us in Christ anticipate hearing a shout and the sound of the trumpet. For us, the “other shoe” points to a joyful and glorious event that we pray will happen soon.
The Rapture will fulfill the words of John 14:2-3 as well as 1 Corinthians 15:50-56; it will signify the beginning of eternity for us as we instantly receive imperishable bodies and Jesus catches us up to meet Him in the air. This moment will be glorious beyond what we can envision at the moment.
For those left behind, “the other shoe” will be the sudden destruction that will initiate the day of the Lord after the Rapture of the church. This “other shoe” will come with many terrifying consequences for those outside of Christ.
If you do not yet know Jesus as your Savior, please call upon now. In my post, Salvation In No Other Name, I explain how you can know that you have eternal life by trusting Jesus alone for the forgiveness of your sins. He died on the cross bearing the punishment for your sins, so that you might live forever.
Please know that there’s incredible hope despite the severity of the time in which we live. Whether or not you believe what I write, the reality is that the walls are rapidly closing in on our world. My intent here is not to scare people, but to wake up believers to the time in which we live and call upon those outside of Christ to call upon Him while you can, before the other shoe hits the floor.

In Biden's Woke World, No Admiral Qualities – Tony Perkins - https://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=5035
Joe Biden might not have a plan for the border, inflation, COVID, China, or the supply chain crisis, but don't worry! He has one thing under control. The president, who's up to his clenched fists in political problems, seems to think the best distraction for his messes is talking about the one thing he hasn't shut up about since day one -- gender equality.
If you're wondering whether there are more pressing issues facing America, the answer is: not to this White House.
Apparently, the president hasn't had enough time to visit the border, but he has had enough time to pour over his staff's 42-page blueprint on wokeism. The document, "National Strategy on Gender Equity and Equality," is everything we've come to expect from this White House -- a declaration of war on pro-life laws, science, parents, education, and common sense.
Entire segments are devoted to the importance of abortion and America's obligations to make Roe v. Wade permanent law, abolish the Hyde amendment, funnel more money to Planned Parenthood and "family planning programs." When the administration isn't busy demanding affordable abortions for both genders, they move on to lobbying for even more radicalized sex education programs (which are already considered "too graphic" for TV).
Biden also took the opportunity to pick a fight with parents, once again staking out his outrageous agenda for gender ideology at school. Ignoring the nationwide headlines about where his transgender policies can lead, the White House again vows to make everything gender neutral, including promoting "equitable access to sports and school facilities for all student athletes..."
Alliance Defending Freedom's Christiana Holcomb could hardly believe the administration's tone-deafness. "It's laughable to tout 'gender equity' while simultaneously promoting the erasure of women and girls into law," she tweeted.
Considering the White House's slumping approval rating, this public service announcement about the president's pet cause couldn't come at a worse time. While Biden's own poll numbers hit basement levels, his LGBTQ priorities were already there. A new poll from Virginia, where these issues have ignited local communities, shows that even liberal states are anything but supportive of the president's extremism.
Across every demographic, Biden's attack on privacy, sports, and girls' safety is a major miss. On the open bathroom question, only 39 percent agree with the president that letting boys into girls' stalls is a good idea. Forty-eight percent oppose.
As for letting boys compete on girls' teams, it's not even competitive. By a 52 to 29 percent margin, all voters -- including white, black, independent, Hispanic -- despise the idea of letting biological boys rip girls off of scholarships, rankings, and opportunities from Virginia's daughters.
But then, the White House has never cared much about what voters think about the president's gender fixation. In eight months, he's spent every cent of his political capital to elevate the issue across the military, education, even health care. It's the one issue, in a raft of policy flip-flops, where Americans have never had to doubt Biden's sincerity.
While the rest of the world burns, his biggest priority is still cheerleading for men like Rachel Levine. In a gratuitous publicity stunt, the administration decided to make Levine -- the second in command at HHS -- a four-star admiral in a "uniformed branch" most people have never heard of: the United States Public Health Service Commissioned Corps.
Apparently, making Levine the highest-ranking person who identifies as transgender in government wasn't enough. Now, in a PR campaign that's offensive to men and women in the Armed Services, the president's team fanned out across the networks, calling it a historic appointment and the first "female four-star officer" across the "uniformed services."
Of course, that isn't accurate on a number of levels -- not the least of which is that Levine is a man. It's also, as Allie Stuckey points out, a great insult to Michelle J. Howard, the first real female four-star admiral promoted by the Navy under -- you guessed it -- Joe Biden.
Like a lot of veterans, Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.) was irritated by the fanfare, tweeting, "The title of the first female four-star officer gets taken by a man." The Indiana congressman had barely hit "post," when the Left's social media censors pounced, locking Banks out of Twitter for violating their "hateful conduct" policy.
But if that was supposed to chasten Banks, it didn't. "Twitter has suspended my official account for posting a statement of FACT," he argued. I won't back down... We can't allow Big Tech to prevent us from telling the truth... Calling someone that was born and lived as a man for 54 years the first 'female' four-star officer is an insult to every little girl who dreams of breaking glass ceilings one day." (He was later reinstated after deleting the tweet in question.)
Meanwhile, retired Army Ranger John Lucas can't believe the audacity of the White House to "present Levine as an accomplished four-star admiral." It's a fraud, he argues, "particularly coupled with the references to all of the uniformed services, as if they are somehow comparable."
"Although now designated as an 'admiral,' Levine commands no sailors, no submarines, and no ships. At least the admiral managing the [National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration] has ships and aircraft to command. Unlike Navy admirals, Levine did not become an admiral after decades of service, including overseas deployments, time away from family, and the hazards that accompany military service.
Nor did he attend Annapolis or any other service academy, or even Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) or officer candidate school. He was never an ensign, lieutenant, commander, captain, or even a vice admiral... There is no doubt that he is most famous for claiming to be a woman, after 33 years of marriage and fathering two children with a real woman."
What happened to "follow the science?" Well, like everything else, the truth only matters to the Left when it's convenient. And until the science of biology, vaccinations, sexuality, human conception, and child development aligns with their narrative, the president will do what he's done with every real issue since taking office: ignore it.
Blessed Hope or Bunch of Dopes? - By Terry James - https://www.raptureready.com/2021/10/28/blessed-hope-or-bunch-of-dopes-by-terry-james/
Usually, when coming against the pre-Trib view of Rapture, detractors say something like: “The word ‘rapture’ isn’t mentioned anywhere in the Bible.”
We usually retort with something like: “Neither are words such as ‘trinity’ or even ‘Bible.’ But they are clearly there when considering contexts and study of the body of scriptural evidence.”
“Besides,” we say, “the Greek word harpazo is found as the word rapturo in the Latin Vulgate.”
Anyone paying much attention to prophetic trends concerning eschatological viewpoints (whether premillennial, postmillennial, amillennial, or whatever) will have noticed by now a turning away from the pre-Trib position.
Even more strongly stated, we see an adamant, even scathingly antagonistic, movement away from this view.
My own thinking about the reason for this is that it is short-sightedness and experiential paralysis. Those who have abdicated – call it “defected from — the pre-Trib Rapture position can’t conflate an imminent Rapture with the prophetic stage-setting we’re experiencing.
Our headlines create in the minds of these defectors an inability to any longer believe that Titus 2:13 really means what it says.
“Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ” (Titus 2: 13).
These defectors and/or detractors are experiencing the crush of the stage being set for the Tribulation (Daniel 9 and the book of Revelation) every hour of every day. Those who have always come against any idea of a pre-Trib Rapture are appearing to be increasingly validated through the things taking place in America and across the world.
They see the ethnic upheavals prophesied by Jesus (Luke 21 and Mark 13). They see the principalities and powers of wickedness in high places literally taking over this nation and the world. They see apostasy abounding everywhere they look—with the Roman Catholic pope leading the way in championing the murders of millions upon millions of babies in their mothers’ wombs, all the while denying that Jesus Christ is the only Way to reconciliation with God the Father and salvation.
Those angry against the view of the pre-Trib Rapture give Paul the apostle, who was given the mystery of that great Rapture event by the Lord Himself, little to no credence. Yet, they point to how the “perilous times” (2 Timothy 3) prove their point that the Tribulation might already be in its beginning stage of fulfillment. “We are,” I heard one of these Rapture detractors say, “right in the middle of perilous times, and this proves there will be no Rapture before the Tribulation era becomes full-blown.”
I listened to one pastor, who was said to have dropped out of the “Church of God,” say that he used to be a believer in the pre-Trib view, but he now sees it as a false and dangerous teaching. He, in effect, went on to lay out his case that all who believe in a pre-Trib Rapture, seeing all the things unfolding in the world today, are dopes. We are fools for such foolishness after living through such, at the very least, a time of just entering the Tribulation.
The pastor went on to say that no place in the Bible states there will be a seven-year Tribulation period. He said it only speaks of the “Great Tribulation” mentioned by Jesus in the Olivet Discourse and that what Jesus said proves that era will be only three and a half years.
Again, he and his anti-PreTrib Rapture sort point to the lack of a single verse in order to prove the pre-Trib view is false. (Our view—which is the Bible’s presentation—holds to a seven-year Tribulation). They can’t, or won’t, see that the wide body of text, in context, proves that the horrendous time leading up to the Second Advent of the Lord Jesus encompasses seven years. All we have to do is to look at Daniel’s prophecy of seven weeks of years (Daniel chapter 9) to understand the time span that will wrap up God’s plan that leads to the millennial reign of Christ.
The pastor then said we who are of the pre-Trib belief refuse to debate him and others on the matter. He is right about that. I and others have long ago refused to debate whether there is a pre-Trib Rapture. It serves no purpose, as all the issues have been long-ago debated and with only harsh rhetoric emerging when the final analyses concluded.
We point people who want truth to the “mystery” given Paul as he expounded upon in 1 Corinthians 4:51–55 and 2 Thessalonians 4:13–18. No need to debate the pre-Trib Rapture. It is there for anyone to clearly understand with the Holy Spirit’s guidance.
I’m convinced that anyone and everyone who genuinely seeks truth by studying these Scriptures will find that the pre-Trib view and the “blessed hope” of Titus 2:13 isn’t held by a bunch of “dopes,” as charged by the detractors/defectors.
Public Schools Are At The Epicenter Of America’s Values Implosion - by Michael Snyder - http://endoftheamericandream.com/public-schools-are-at-the-epicenter-of-americas-values-implosion/
It is often said that children are the future, and America’s children are being raised in nightmarish propaganda centers that are cesspools of sex, violence and just about every type of evil that you can possibly imagine. All the way through my education, I attended public schools, and they were really bad in my day. But now they are so horrific that I don’t know why any parent would ever want to subject their children to such an environment. When they are in class, children are being systematically taught “values” that are completely and utterly un-American, and when they are out of class that is when the real danger begins. Just when you think that our public schools can’t possibly sink any lower, somehow they find a way to do exactly that. For example, consider what just happened at Hazard High School in Kentucky…
As part of homecoming week activities, Tuesday was costume day at Hazard High School and a “man pageant” was held.
Multiple photos were posted and then taken down from the Hazard High School athletics Facebook page.
They appear to show scantily clad students giving lap dances to faculty and staff.
This didn’t happen in New York or Los Angeles.
This happened in the supposedly “red state” of Kentucky.
These people are supposed to have “country values”, but instead it appears that they have no values at all.
What kind of sickos would think that it is a good idea for male students to dress up like strippers and give staff members lap dances?
The principal and everyone else involved in that spectacle should immediately be fired.
You are probably thinking that I am also going to talk about what recently happened in Loudoun County, Virginia in this article, and you would be right.
This week, a court determined that a 15-year-old girl had been sexually assaulted “in the girls’ bathroom of a Loudoun County high school in May”…
In a case that has generated a political firestorm, a Virginia juvenile court judge found sufficient evidence during a trial Monday to sustain charges that a teen sexually assaulted a classmate in the girls’ bathroom of a Loudoun County high school in May.
The teenager, now 15, is also charged with the sexual assault of another student that occurred months later at a different Loudoun school. Loudoun County juvenile court Chief Judge Pamela L. Brooks said she would wait to sentence the teen until that case is decided in November.
So why did this particular case create such a firestorm?
After all, girls are raped in our public schools all the time.
So why should this incident get so much attention?
Well, it turns out that the boy that did the raping was wearing a skirt at the time…
While gender fluidity was not raised during the hearing, court documents confirm the male suspect was wearing a skirt when the assault took place, reports Yahoo! News, adding that the female victim testified in court that she was violently coerced into performing sexual acts.
Not wanting to create negative publicity for their radical social agenda, the Loudon County school board kept the rape very quiet.
Subsequently, the school board voted 7-2 to allow transgender students to use whatever bathrooms they want.
As for the rapist, he was transferred to another high school, and at his new school he sexually assaulted another female student in October…
After the assault at Stone Bridge High School, the male student was transferred to Broad Run, where he allegedly assaulted a second female student in early October.
This is what our public schools have become.
If you allow your daughters into those sewers, you are just asking for them to be harmed.
Of course the same is true for your sons. Just this week, an extremely wild brawl at a school in Manhattan resulted in six school safety agents getting injured…
A raucous brawl triggered by a social media feud erupted at a Manhattan high school Wednesday, leaving six school safety agents injured, sources said.
The melee broke out around lunch time at the Washington Irving High School campus near Union Square when two students squared off in the auditorium over an argument that started on Instagram Live, according to students.
Of course that isn’t much of a shock, because wild brawls erupt in our schools all the time.
These days, the violence has to reach the level of a school shooting in order to make much of an impact in the news.
Sadly, there have been 11 school shootings in the United States just since the beginning of September.
Meanwhile, our public school students aren’t being taught to read, write, talk properly or do math. Things are particularly bad in the city of Chicago…
But there’s a more fundamental problem: the graduation rate distracts from the fact that CPS officials are pushing out poorly educated children.
Only 26 of Chicago 11th-graders are proficient in English Language Arts and only 27 percent proficient in math according to 2019 Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) data.
Most public school students leave high school without possessing the skills that they need to function on even a very basic level in our society.
But they are being trained how to be politically correct.
This week, I was stunned to learn that a school district in Delaware County has changed their dress code because it was “discriminating” against Satanists…
A local Satanic organization has convinced a school district in Delaware County that its dress code was discriminatory against Satanists.
Joseph Rose, the founder of a local organization called Satanic Delco, says fellow Satanists with children attending schools within the Rose Tree Media School District made him aware of the verbiage in the dress code banning any clothing or gear that are “satanic in nature.”
Our schools may not be safe, and they may not be teaching much of value, but at least they are becoming more welcoming for Satanists.
Our country is rotting from within, and if we stay on this path it won’t take us anywhere good.
How bad does it have to get before people start waking up on a massive scale?
Over the years, we were often warned that one day we would wake up and America would be unrecognizable.
Sadly, that day has already arrived, and our moral collapse continues to get worse with each passing day.
Daily Jot: God Bless Loudoun Co., Va Parents - Bill Wilson – www.dailyjot.com
People looking how to stand against the tyranny of local, state and federal government need look no further than the courageous parents who engaged the Loudoun County, Va., school board for their anti-American, anti-student, and anti-education actions. The brouhaha began over a policy trampling religious rights requiring teachers to use LGBTQ promoted pronouns and students using bathrooms of the sex they “identified with.” Then a young lady was raped by a boy in the girls’ restroom, the school board cover up and denial of it, the Biden Administration saying it would sic the FBI on dissenting parents for being domestic terrorists, and a former president saying it’s much ado about nothing.
Loudoun County has since become front and center in the state’s governor’s race. Democrat former governor Terry McAuliffe, a former Clinton political operative, is on video tape in a debate saying that he doesn’t think parents should tell schools what they can teach. His opponent, Glenn Younkin disagrees. Enter former president Barak Obama on the campaign trail for McAuliffe. Over the weekend, Obama, instead of empathizing with the girl who was raped, referred generally to the Loudoun County controversy, saying, “We don’t have time to be wasted on these phony trumped-up culture wars, this fake outrage, the right-wing media’s pedals to juice their ratings.” Really? So much for believing victims.
Well, the object of the fake outrage and phony culture war was found guilty by Pamela Brooks, the chief judge of the county’s Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court. The boy was convicted on one count of forcible sodomy and one count of forcible fellatio, both felonies. Sentencing was delayed because there is another case where the same boy is charged with sexually assaulting another student at another Loudoun County school. Can’t discuss why boys using girls bathrooms is a bad policy, according to Obama and McAuliffe, because it’s a waste of time. What a nightmare. Moreover, the National School Boards Association (NSBA) wrote a letter to the Biden Administration asking that dissenting parents be treated the same as domestic terrorists.
The NSBA letter prompted US Attorney General Merrick Garland to waste no time in demanding the FBI discourage, identify and prosecuted threatening and dissenting parents. Then emails obtained by Parents Defending Education revealed that NSBA had been in talks with the White House for several weeks, raising suspicion of collusion. Merrick then denied that parents would be treated as domestic terrorists and the NSBA issued an apology. Obama, however, hasn’t apologized for his insensitive and self-righteous remarks. This is an example of how when people stand in the gap, the Lord can expose the treachery of a school board, a gubernatorial candidate, a former president, a national association, the Attorney General, and the current president. Ephesians 6:13, …”and having done all, to stand.” May we all be so bold.
Daily Devotion: No Agenda - by Greg Laurie – www.harvest.org
So, Moses cried out to the Lord for help. —Exodus 15:25
https://harvest.org/resources/devotion/no-agenda/ - Listen
When we pray, sometimes we feel as though we need to give God directions. “Lord, here’s what You’re going to do, and here’s when You’re going to do it.”
We don’t need to do that, but we do need to pray and bring our needs before the Lord. When the Israelites were turning against Moses, for example, we read that he cried out to the Lord (see Exodus 15:25).
And when John the Baptist was beheaded, Matthew’s gospel says that his disciples went and told Jesus (see Matthew 14:12). I love that. An unspeakable tragedy took place, so what did they do? They told the Lord about it.
When King Hezekiah received a threatening letter, the Bible tells us that “he went up to the Lord’s Temple and spread it out before the Lord” (2 Kings 19:14 NLT).
Mary and Martha did this as well. When their brother, Lazarus, got sicker and sicker, they appealed to their loving friend with a message: “Lord, behold, he whom You love is sick” (John 11:3 NKJV).
Notice the basis of their appeal. They didn’t say, “Lord, we’ve cooked so many meals for You that You owe us big time. Remember all those times You showed up without warning?” Rather, they simply said, “He whom You love is sick.” Ultimately Jesus would do His work in His way in His timing.
So when we’re sick or in need, we should call on the Lord—but we shouldn’t necessarily tell Him what He’s supposed to do.
Has someone threatened you? Are you being criticized? Are people turning against you? Have you been betrayed by a friend, a loved one, or a business partner? Cry out to the Lord. Whatever comes your way, you can find comfort in knowing that God loves you and is watching out for you.

WORTHY OF YOUR SUPPORT?
One of the most reliable ways to determine if a ministry is worthy of your financial support is to examine its fruits. If Prophecy Update is keeping you informed, and if that information inspires you, and causes you to draw closer to the Lord, if Prophecy Update equips you with valuable information and knowledge to share with and encourage other believers, and open the eyes of non-believers, and if Prophecy Update keeps you connected to current events relating to Bible Prophecy, then you are partaking of the fruit produced through this ministry. None of this would be possible without the Lords blessings and your support. I believe where the Lord guides, the Lord provides, and most of the time He provides through the willing and generous hearts of believers just like you and me.
Humbly Seek Your Support
Prophecy Update has no corporate sponsors. This ministry is paid for and prayed for by readers and supporters. Without your support, there would be no Prophecy Update, Please pray about becoming a monthly supporter - thanks!
If ever there was a time to invest in God's Kingdom, it's now!
What on earth are you doing for Heaven's Sake?
"Share in the Blessings and Rewards that will last Forever!"
"Folks, it's all beginning to unravel. America is in more danger of falling than at any time in its history. But I believe Bible prophecy predicts this very decline. From this point on, we believers have to get serious. We are going to face discouragement, disillusionment and, most certainly, persecution in the time between now and the Rapture. But don't be discouraged or disillusioned. The coming turmoil will provide us unrivaled opportunities to share the good news of the Gospel. So be ready to share your faith and your hope with those who need Christ. We still have time to reap a great harvest of souls for God's kingdom!" - Hal Lindsey

Our Prayer for You- "Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness. You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through us your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God's people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, men will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else." 2 Corinthians 9:10-13
